A wonderful 'first' guided meditation if you are new to the practice or a gentle reminder of the simplicity of meditation and how you may experience it easily in your life. SOME HELPFUL NOTES ABOUT WHAT MAKES MEDITATION SO BENEFICIAL... Any type of deep, slow diaphragmatic breathing — during which you visualize filling up the lower part of your lungs just above your belly button like a balloon, and then exhaling slowly — is going to stimulate your vagus nerve, activate your parasympathetic nervous system, and improve your heart rate variability (HRV). The brain interprets your diaphragmatic breathing as a sign to calm the body, and does so - quite instantly. Some people make time every day to practice diaphragmatic breathing as part of a yoga or mindfulness meditation routine. Others take a deep and conscious breath when they catch themselves feeling anxious or "panicky," as a simple and immediate strategy for when they want to gain perspective, or wish to relieve some frustration. All of these applications of diaphragmatic breathing are very helpful. Join me in this sampling of 'Meditate with Me' to experience a helpful meditation that you'll want to keep as a part of your regular practice. Namaste!! Music Credit: Jeff Pearce 2013 (sample)

Breathe with Awareness
In this very calming meditation, Dorothy has us bring awareness to our breath by placing one hand on the center of our chest and our other hand on our belly. Placing our hands on these two areas of our body as we breathe can give us a sense of calmness, focus and peace. While breathing in through my nostrils and breathing out through my mouth, I felt the rising and falling of my chest. Then, I visualized a balloon in my belly, inflating and deflating, with every inhalation and exhalation. After listening to this wonderful meditation, I feel cool, calm, and collected! Thank you, Dorothy! Namaste 🙏🏻❤️☮️
